Ryan takes a look at the Royals speed coming down the pike.
” First off, there is absolutely no reason to expect Mondesi to go anywhere by 2021. There have been well-founded concerns about his staying power since he became a full time player last season, but at this point he has established his ability to be a top-tier shortstop despite these concerns. A good comparison for Mondesi is Javier Baez, and it’s pretty reasonable to expect that type of production from Mondesi; he’s similarly dynamic and athletic, has pop in his bat, is a gifted defensive middle infielder, and has even more speed than Baez. “
